Cons: "Aircraft was stifling throughout the entire flight."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Fights were delayed, but the staff kept us constantly updated."
Cons: "Delayed for unknown reason. Boarding was unusually disorganized."
Cons: "Scary take-off and landing. That's what you get when flying in the worst storm of the winter though."
Pros: "Flight attendants are among the most professional and refined I’ve come across traveling anywhere in North America. It’s a pleasure flying with them."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and even roomy, compared to many other airlines."
Cons: "Two minor drawbacks: (1) In the Porter lounge, where I was stuck between connecting flights, the cost of food was too high. (2) The weather buffets these small planes more than would be the case with jetliners."
Pros: "Easy on/easy off"
Cons: "The lavatory was dirty and had a very high odour. There MUST be a way to clean it between flights."
Cons: "Delayed for several hours."
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Crew was nice."
Pros: "The hostess, seats,the peanuts"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable seats, leg room is really good and snacks."
Cons: "Delayed flight 45 minutes"
Pros: "Pretty much on time and smooth landing."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 4 boring and tiring hrs."
Cons: "Delayed flight and no decent food to purchase at d louge"
Pros: "once we took off it was fine"
Pros: "We made it to our destination. Flight attendants were pleasant. Juice was served in a real glass not plastic. Storage in overhead very narrow. Couldn’t get standard size bag it it."
Cons: "Gate was changed but no announcements were made.Flight left over an hour late. No instructions given for people with connecting flights."
Pros: "I thought the staff - all of them, ground and cabin crew - were just extraordinary; so attentive, welcoming and really trying to make travel as easy and enjoyable as possible. For instance, my original first flight leg was delayed, which would jeopardize me making my connection in Toronto. The gentleman at the check-in desk at my departure airport immediately arranged for me to take an earlier flight into Toronto so I would not miss my connection. I didn't - or indeed couldn't - ask for anything more. Thank you to the Porter crew!"
Pros: "Shuttle/downtown convenience / ease of boarding procedures due to small size / coffee in lounge!"
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "Need to rethink the winter schedule. Too much disruption with Porter. Flights can't be so dependent on the one just before. Schedule is set as if it is a clear day in the summer"
Pros: "The service was great and fast"
Cons: "Both of my Porter Airlines flights were delayed. It seems they often delay / cancel flights"
Pros: "Plane and crew great."
Cons: "Check in and ground crew rude and poor. Flight delayed and no one told us anything."
Pros: "Crew was really nice and personable."
Cons: "Of 4 Porter flights in 3 days, the first two legs of each were delayed, resulting in 0 time between connections. You'd think that because we're traveling on one airline with two legs, there'd be some communication between flights that passengers on the first delayed flight are going to misconnect on their second flight. Didn't seem like there was... really stressful."
Pros: "Great service, comfortable seats. I appreciated the complimentary snacks, and the lounge experience in Toronto. Porter had plenty of staff to help figure out my travel in utmost ease."
Cons: "The flight was impacted by a 5 hour rolling delay. That meant it was not possible to take the connecting flight. So options were to stay in Toronto or return to Montreal airport 2 days later to get on the same flight. They have no arrangements with other airlines to get you on their plane at the same fare. You may save money on this airline, but, you better have schedule flexibility. We had a similar issue on the flight to Montreal. Will never fly them again!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The check in process was good, attendant there was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It was hard to hear the employee shouting out which rows were able to board. We couldn't get close enough to hear and they didn't have a microphone or loud speaker. The flight attendant who was working our flight was very abrasive and rude. We were asking if there was any additional bag storage and she said she didn't have time to help us."
Pros: "The lounge at Billy Bishop was lovely, and thee flight attendants are very pleasant."
Cons: "My flight was delayed because they said there was something with their fuel, and my connecting flight — which Porter told me would be held for the many of us relying on it — took off 10 minutes beforee we got in."
Pros: "There was a delay on my first flight with a very short layover and everyone I talked to helped ease my worry that I'd miss my flight. They ended up prioritizing us through security and holding our connecting flight back until we got on."
Pros: "in general it was fine"
Pros: "flight delayed, connection not possible, over 1 h waiting on phone to rebook! compensation minimal"
Pros: "-quick connection and lounge -having real glass to drink out of on the flight is a real treat"

Pros: "We needed to change our flight plans at the airport. Never has it been so easy. Would recommend Porter to anyone."

Cons: "There were some weird smells"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Couldn't change to an earlier flight without a charge"
Pros: "Glass !"
Pros: "Lounge and snacks at Toronto were great. Staff were excellent. Flight was enjoyable."
Cons: "Delays mainly. Flight from Toronto to Montreal was almost jeopardized due to lateness of first leg (Newark to Toronto). Understandably there was heavy rain that day. Return journey, (Montreal to Newark via Toronto) the connecting flight was delayed by an hour. In general, on-flight food could be more substantial, considering the time between Newark and Montreal."

Pros: "I landed safely"
Cons: "The infotainment system didn’t work. Headphones connection is faulty. Everything else was ok."
Pros: "It appears that Air Canada is doing the correct thing for passengers who have reserved their seats in advance....after many years of not applying their written policy of making them board after business class/disabled passengers/passengers with young children, they have created Zone 2 boarding which permits passengers with reserved seating to board immediately after them, therefore guaranteeing them overhead bin space. As we all know, a lot of passengers board with much more than one carry-on, which is a plague when boarding."
